How Can We Prepare Students for a Changing World of Science? - Dr. Mya Poe
Start Date: 4/23/2021Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 4/23/2021End Time: 2:30 PM
Event Description:
FLEX # 676
In this workshop, we will use different ways of narrating the history of science to think about how diverse perspectives can be brought to the table. We will then use these historical tellings and re-tellings of science as a springboard to discuss four ethical issues in scientific publishing today—ethics of authorship and collaboration, data integrity, plagiarism and text recycling, and bias in peer review. Through discussions of these four ethical issues, participants will be able to explore changing norms for disciplinary knowledge-making, make science more inclusive in classroom and lab contexts, and prepare students for the changing world of scientific practice.

Mya Poe is Associate Professor of English and Director of the Writing Program at Northeastern University. Her research focuses on writing assessment, writing development, and scientific communication with particular attention to issues of equity, justice, and fairness. Prior to joining Northeastern, she was the Director of Technical Communication at Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she spent a decade team-teaching and collaborating with faculty in the sciences and engineering. She is the co-author of Learning to Communicate in Science and Engineering (CCCC Advancement of Knowledge Award, 2012), co-editor of Race and Writing Assessment (CCCC Outstanding Book of the Year, 2014), and co-editor of Writing Assessment, Social Justice, and the Advancement of Opportunity (2019).
